If you are thinking Apple’s CDMA version of iPhone 4 is only for Verizon, you would partially correct. According to “sources from upstream component makers” close to Digitimes informed that, CDMA iPhone won’t be an exclusive to Verizon in the United States. Apple’s CDMA Version iPhone 4 will soon be available in China, Japan, and South Korea.
It looks like, Pegatron & Faxconn both are manufacturing CDMA iPhone; Faxconn manufactured CDMA iPhone will be exclusive to the United States, while Pegatron’s manufactured CDMA iPhone will be shipped to China, Japan, & South Korea (Hopefully to the rest of the world.)
Pegatron started shipping its CDMA iPhone 4 in January 2011 and Foxconn started in December 2010. Foxconn’s model will be solely supplied to the US, while Pegatron’s model will be supplied to China and other countries. Since US-based telecom carrier Verizon currently has over 93 million users in the US, the launch of CDMA iPhone is expected to double the number of the current iPhone users in the market.
Since Apple is also set to start supplying its CDMA iPhone to Japan and South Korea, the company’s iPhone shipments in 2011 are expected to reach a new record.
Rumors are syas that, CDMA iPhone will be available in India, as both Reliance Telecommunications & Tata Telecommunication are in talks with Apple. As of now, we have heard any news on it yet. So, lets hope that Indian will soon be bless with CDMA iPhone 4.
